Old Jail Museum

This has been a tough year for the humanities due to Covid-19.   We had originally scheduled the 3rd Annual Dillinger Raid for April and that was postponed to September.  Sadly we have had to cancel this event.

However, we still currently have an extensive display commemorating the 85th anniversary of John Dillinger’s infamous raid on the Warsaw Police Station.  To that end, the Warsaw Police Station had graciously loaned several items to display including: Officer Judd Pittenger’s uniform, a vest stolen during the robbery and guns retrieved from previous bank robberies.  This display will continue through November.  We hope you will have an opportunity to visit.

Our newest ongoing display features the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which assured voting rights to women.  Information on local women involved in the suffrage movement is also included.

Our hours are Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  (We are closed on Saturdays through the end of 2020.)
